One who intends to leave others better off for his having existed.

Why hasn't the Greensboro News & Record reported on the Craig Saperstein, Pillsbury Law lobbyist campaign contribution story?

Are the less informed easier to persuade than the more?

If white northern college students enlisted for voter registration drives,
only after murders of black civil rights volunteers
went relatively unreported by law enforcement and news organizations
is the Greensboro News & Record doing the same thing
only different?

Without an informed and free press,
there cannot be an enlightened people.

Justice Potter Stewart

Is an independent press
essential to capitalistic democracy?

Freedom of the press
is guaranteed only to those who own one.



A J Liebling

Why is journalism the only profession
explicitly protected by the US Constitution?

Not to transmit an experience
is to betray it.
